Night In Iowa

Nimbus clouds erasing stars above Lamoni.
Jaundiced lights. Silos. Loose dogs. Cows
whose stench infuses the handful of homes,
whose sad voices storm the plains with longing.

this poem reminds me of Ginsberg. the mark oof a really good poet is in the strength of their short poems. i think anyone can write a 4 page poem, and somewhere in it will be something memorable and touching and talented. but the great poets can always touch your soul just as well in a hundred words.
